From the Inside Flap
I have always been interested in the field of medicine. However, I knew I did not want to become a doctor and practice medicine, yet I always imagined having a career that was highly respected and would allow me to be involved with the latest in medical advances. I also wanted a career that was dynamic, global in nature, would allow me to travel, would provide financial rewards, and was in high demand. In 2000, I began my career within the pharmaceutical industry, and I found exactly what I was looking for in the Medical Science Liaison (MSL) role.
From the Back Cover
Even for highly qualified candidates, becoming a Medical Science Liaison is a challenging endeavor. It's nearly impossible to achieve on your own without the proper preparation and guidance.

The book reveals strategies for standing apart from the competition, what hiring managers look for when considering candidates, and what gets the right candidates hired.

As I am approaching graduation, the MSL role caught my attention. Dr. Dyer’s guide provided me with a clear picture of what to expect in the hiring process alongside a clear definition and understanding of the role. The book is written concisely, has a clear structure and is free of any redundancy. You can see how his enormous expertise in the MSL field is condensed in this book, both in terms of content and writing style. After all, precise communication skills are crucial for this role.
In regards to those negative reviews, a lack of specific examples is not something I see as an issue. On the contrary, considering the vast diversity of the field it would simply be too much, too overwhelming and let alone not feasible for a book of that format. As aforementioned, one of the books strengths is being concise in delivering the relevant messages. The book won’t do the work for you. Hard work is always warranted. It will however, help you to direct your hard work in the right direction.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone thinking of moving into an MSL role. Like I said it digs deep into the process involved in getting hired as an MSL. It looks at the history of the position, how to narrow down MSL positions, how to write the cover letter and resume/CV, what to say and do at the interview, and even makes suggestions for your appearance. The book encompasses everything a person would need to be successful. Its also nice to have a resource to refer back and review to when needed.
On a last note, I want to say that before purchasing the book I reached out to the author, Dr. Samuel Dyer. He was tremendously helpful and supportive and continues to give me advice as I pursue my own goals. Dr. Dyer is very genuine and serious about helping people succeed. Do not hesitate getting this book, it will help you on your journey.
The (rare) negative reviews written are surprising to me and in my opinion very inaccurate. Having attended one of Dr. Dyer’s conferences I can state with certainty he is deeply committed to helping aspiring MSLs succeed and truly passionate about furthering the profession. I only wish I had discovered this book and the MSL Society sooner.
This book is not the cheapest book counted by $/page, but I would venture to say it is a trivial investment comparing to its returns. Its content is equivalent to the "know-how" in the industrial world; it deserves every penny you spent! A must read. Two thumbs up. Superb!!
